Is there a reference that I can use (as a beginner) or can anyone help me identify this label?
Thank you.

Very nice !

Registration Label is fine.
Generally assumes a constant design in country with the shape of the "R"

France

You already asked and got the answer on another thread!
It is kind of unusual though in that the number on the label is very low. Shows you that the town was not too big! Personally I would soak the label to get rid of the extra paper and the gum. After all, it is a used label, and the gum will eventually destroy the nice label.

Sorry, I was trying to pursue the part about leaving the date of origin and stuff to the experts. I figured a new topic would be appropriate.

I do not believe it is that old. Probably from after WWII, if you don't think that is old. I have some of those that are from the Netherlands, and they were used in the 50"s and early 60's.
Kelump, I just Googled these and found some were in use as early as the thirties and forties!

Some countries, especially in Germany and German states, began using paper registration labels on their registered mails in the 1870s or thereabouts.

In 1883, the Universal Postal Union issued a regulation that required that all member countries identify their registered letters with a paper label with the large "R" and sequence number to be applied on all mail sent to foreign destinations, which was the jurisdiction of the UPU.

The United States used these labels between Jan 1, 1883 and Jan 24, 1911.

One such example is here...



In the US, the internal regulations required that the sequence numbering restart at the beginning of each quarter. This was done at all Exchange Offices except New York, where the volume was so large that they restarted much more frequently (numbers ranged from 1 to 100,000)

In Mexico, the numbers started on July 1 and ran to June 30 of the following year until sometime in the 1920s I believe, then they changed and a new sequence was started on Jan 1st of each year.

No doubt, other countries used some sort of similar pattern. However, once the pattern is known, a collector can use the date a label was used (if on a cover), and the number of the label, to estimate the volume of registered mail from that post office for the year.

You may wish to enquire further, with French specialists.

In Australia, the number on the Registration label, had no significance
to the date of the cover sent, it merely tied the cover, to the Log Book/s for its journey.

Registration Labels were provided in pads, and the number could be 1-999 for example,
then repeated when the pads ran out.

In Papua-New Guinea (and another country, the name escapes me ) Registration Labels were used as stamps
They are now worth a fortune.
